Accommodation

On the first night, you will stay at Venice Hotel. The following two nights, you will be staying at Fanaka Lodge. For the rest of your tour though, accommodation will be at Venice Hotel. Foot Slopes Tours and Safaris chooses not only quality lodges and tented camps with en-suite facilities, but consider their locations foremost in the planning.

The accommodations are located within and outside the national park and reserve boundaries whenever possible to start each morning closer to the wildlife. The lodges they choose feature spectacular scenery, comfortable furnishings, and friendly and accommodating staff. Some even offer swimming pools for relaxing after a long safari drive!

Fanaka is the preferred choice for the budget safaris for tourists to experience a rich local atmosphere. Choose Fanaka Campsite in Mto Wa Mbu to enjoy the difference, while being served by their committed and dedicated team that is ready to give you a high level of personalized services to ensure your comfortable stay. Fairly new property with green gardens and exclusive camping sites, it is a unique quiet place and off from noisy public places such as social clubs and drinking bars.

Program

Day 1: Arrival in Tanzania

Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). You will be met by your professional safari guide / driver who will transfer you to the hotel for overnight stay depending on your arrival date and time. After that, you will be briefed on the details regarding your safari adventure.

Day 2: Arusha - Lake Manyara National Park

After breakfast, your driver will take you to Lake Manyara for a game drive in the beautiful Manyara National Park. There you will see buffalo, giraffe, zebra, and much more, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Great Rift Wall. Late in the evening, the driver will take you to Tarangire National Park with an en-route game drive. Then you will stay overnight at Fanaka Lodge.

Day 3: Tarangire National Park to Ngorongoro Crater

After early breakfast, proceed for a game drive to Tarangire National Park with picnic lunches. It is the national park which herds of up to 300 elephants scrape the waterless river bed for alternative streams, while nomadic wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest, and eland mass the decrease lagoons.

It is the most attentive wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem, a smorgasbord for predators and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared Oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly seen.

It is the only national park that holds the migrants during the dry season and welcomes home of different species of animal. After a full game drive in Tarangire National Park, return to Fanaka Lodge for an overnight stay and dinner.

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater tour - Arusha

After an early breakfast, proceed directly to the crater floor for a five to six hours tour with picnic lunches down the crater. You will be able to see all the Big Five. Proceed back to Arusha in the evening. Overnight stay at the hotel.

Day 5: Masaai Village

After breakfast, depart from the hotel with lunch box together with the guide and drive to Monduli Juu, a collection of four small Masai villages namely Emairete, Enguiki, Eluwai, and Mfereji. Emairete comprises of a wonderful crater where, in former times, the cattle of only medicine men were supposed to graze. Enguiki Village is named after its famous pastures.

Eluwai is a village called after the trees where certain small ants have their habitat whistling in the wind. Mfereji is a village down the escarpment that, a long time ago, developed from a place where a South African lived who pulled a ditch down to bring water from the Monduli Mountains.

You will have a climbing trip through the evergreen rainforest where you will see the trees, the birds, and other animals of that habitat. You will also have a medical trip where you will feel and smell different medicinal herbs and visit a Maasai traditional healer. Additionally, you will be given warm welcome in Naramatu, a small factory where Maasai jewels are made.

You will also experience a traditional 'nyamachoma' with the Maasai warriors in 'orpul' where you will taste the meat yourself as well as a rest at the astonishing panorama overlooking the Rift Valley, Oldonyo Lengai, and Lake Natron. You will also discover the story of the secret cultural differences between Maasai and Waarusha. Later in the evening, return to Arusha for dinner and overnight stay at the hotel.

Day 6: Arusha to Kilimanjaro National Park

Drive about two hours through Kilimanjaro in the morning to the semi-tropical foothills to Marangu area which is situated on the southeastern side of the mountain. As you drive, there is usually some admirable view of the snow-capped peak of the mountain.

On arrival at Marangu gate, you will meet your team of guides and porters. Pick up any last minute supplies for the trek and head to the entrance of Mount Kilimanjaro National Park to register for the climb.

From the cluster of buildings at the gate, it is some four to five hours walk through the patches of coffee plantation and dense rainforest to reach Mandara Hut. The forest teems with brightly-coloured bird life, colobus, and other varieties of monkey. The flora includes numerous mosses, lichens, and flowers, as well as delicate orchids.

If the skies are clear, you may have fine views over the town of Moshi lying at the boundary of the plain far underneath. Mandara Hut is a collection of basic, A-frame mountain huts with bunk beds, quite adequate for your needs, where you will inevitably meet up with fellow trekkers who are bent on the same goal. Late in the evening, return to Arusha, for an overnight stay at the hotel.

Day 7: Departure

This will be the end of your safari tour. You will drop you off at the airport.
